Cannot get Gmail. The connection to the server failed.

I had to restore my iPhone and now when I try to access Gmail (through Microsoft Exchange, as before) I get the error message: "Cannot get Gmail. The connection to the server failed." Tried deleting and reentering the settings. Any ideas what else I can try?

This: Google Sync End of Life

It is possible to sync contacts and get Gmail on your iPhone, but no longer through Microsoft Exchange as you described.

For people who set up the Exchange method prior to January 30 this year, it'll continue functioning until removed, as has happened with your restore.
